On Wednesday 29 May Dubbo Christian School (DCS) broke ground on their Technical and Applied Science (TAS) Block.
The building will feature a purpose-built woodworking and metalworking space with capacity for other materials, a classroom and a clean room with state-of-the-art IT equipment for design work. This will accommodate the best delivery of the curriculum in this area.
This construction is another milestone in the growth and development of DCS since its establishment in 1983.
There to break the ground were Warren Melville (DCS Principal), Jim White (School Captain), Mikayla Henderson (Kindergarten student), Nino Patriarca (Builder), and Mal Stoddard (Construction Foreman).
“We look forward to the relationship and partnership with Nino and his team from Dubbo Terrazzo and Concrete Industries as they bring to life the design developed by our architects, Stanton Dahl.” Mr Warren Melville said.
Jim and Mikayla were a part of the ceremony representing the DCS student body; Jim representing senior students and leaders who helped in the conceptualising of the building, and Mikayla representing the future generations who will one day make full use of the TAS block and its features.
With all going well, the block is expected to be completed for the beginning of the 2020 school year.
